Hi Larry, Belated greetings and Happy Hallowe'en! Lol!

It's been a long time since I last visited MM. Circumstances beyond my control - ongoing as it happens - have restricted my visits - to most sites - severely. Hoping to get more time for reading and posting in the winter months upcoming. Of late very restricted eyesight , has been an embarrassing restriction. Have to exercise patience until 'perhaps?' a solution can be found.

I enjoyed this Pantoum poem, and your well executed format. Along with a topic, which, not only paints a great scene, but speaking for myself, is seldom seen executed with skills - such as this exhibits. I've tried composing them myself, with some moderate success, but it's quite the complicated pattern one has to follow. Maybe, when I catch up a bit, I'll try some more.

Sad to see the site has declined so badly. Used to enjoy the Challenges and reading the offerings of others. I guess, like all good things, it is going through a bad patch. Age, health and other influences, all play their part, and time seems to be flying by far too quickly for my liking.

Hope you keep well? Ciao for now. Denis aka Rhymer.

Sorry Daniel,

I meant to say “Stretched Sonnet” instead of extended. It is one of the more than 50 types of sonnets I have in my form definitions (all garnered from the net, books, and writer input).
It is defined as any sonnet of 16 or more lines where the author could not contain his/her thoughts within the parameters of the standard 14 line sonnet.

Thanks for the read and the comments. It was difficult but another challenge answered.

Larry

Hi Larry, Finally getting a break from eight days of snow removing, and chanced upon your recent offering. Nicely done and more so because of it's rhythmic rhyming pattern.

Wring any Abecedarian - as I might term it - besides the official form - is always difficult, as well I know, having written quite a few myself over the years. You made it even more tricky, with the strict regimen you imposed upon yourself. Keeping to your theme, was also tricky. Well done! Accolades were earned and well deserved.

I have had little time for writing of late, thanks to Mother Nature's whims! I'm surrounded by snow piles between eight and ten feet high and goodness only knows how wide! All shovelled by hand - my driveway is one hundred feet long and thirty feet wide, but I hate having others do the work when I am still capable! Besides which, I snow ploughed in Toronto for over 35 years, so I'm very critical of work done by others - at a price! Worn out two plastic shovels and winter ain't over yet! So we're told!

Will hope to drop in now and again until I can find time to truly browse through the site.

Ciao for now. Denis.

Thanks Daniel, your comment is much appreciated. My hope is that you are on the road to recovery now? May you enjoy a Prosperous and Healthy 2018. Larry had mentioned you were in hospital, which is no place to be any time, but around Christmas and the New Year, even less so. I'm finding it hard to stay on top of events lately, as we've been clobbered time and again with snow, and bitterly cold temperatures. Minus 25 C under sunny skies, but winds are brisk and I'm not about to challenge them! Shovelled and blew snow for hours again yesterday - the tenth time this winter - and my 'piles' of snow that is, are getting to be more like those generally seen at the end of Winter, not three weeks in!

Have to catch up on my correspondence or folks will think I've moved on to the next world! Are you home now? Been trying to find a programme(s) that can make reading and writing on the computer a tad easier. Have had some success inasmuch as I bought new monitors - Asus VA327H model 31.5 inches which are much better - dimensions are better suited to my failing eyesight, as they are about four inches deeper whilst keeping their width!

Best of luck and hope you're soon back to 100 Per Cent fitness. Ciao Denis.

Firstly I tap the barrel and pour me a beer,
then sing me a song of Christmas cheer.
Next I strive to set up the evergreen tree:
always a true sign of Christmas festivity.

After I have me a short afternoon nap,
a gift tied with bow and emerald wrap,
is added, with a bright holly berry one can see,
that awaits presentation to my wife, from me!

To an ornament tied with Christmas twine
we simmer a glass of mulled cinnamon wine
the scent of which invites visitors who call.
To leave boots, hat and scarf in the hall!.

Rhymer. December 28th, 2017.

Words used in order:
Tap, sing, bow, emerald, wrap, berry,
ornament, simmer, cinnamon, scent.

A little late. Been busy shovelling snow - day after day! Winter? Bah! Denis.
